Summary:
The Grand Prix is an online tournament mode held over three stages in the Arena. In this mode, choose or create a deck to play against other players in a fixed number of matches. During each stage of the tournament, you will be able to play a number of rounds daily to qualify or advance to the next stage—all three stages each have different conditions for advancing.

Three Stages:



STAGE 1
During Stage 1, players will be split into two groups based on the number of matches won after playing a round. Players can advance into Group A by completing a round with the minimum win requirement. Players who do not qualify for Group A will enter Stage 2 in Group B. From Stage 2, players will not be able to change their group.

One round consists of 5 matches. Players can attempt up to 5 rounds per day.
Finish any round during Stage 1 with 4 or more wins to advance to Stage 2 in Group A. This applies even if you have won 4 times but did not go on to finish the 5th match in a round, or if in one round you qualify for Group A, but in the next round win fewer than 4 matches.

STAGE 2
During Stage 2, players can qualify for the Final Stage by completing a round with the minimum win requirement. Players who are unable to qualify will not advance to the Final Stage. (Players will only need to qualify once to advance.)

FINAL STAGE
Unlike the previous two stages, the Final Stage consists of one sudden-death round that can only be attempted once. Do you have what it takes to be crowned champion?

How to Play:

STAGES 1 AND 2
You can play one round daily for free. If you wish to try again on the same day, you can buy another entry with Crystals, rupies, or Grand Prix tickets.

FINAL STAGE
You can play in the Final Stage for free if you have qualified through Stage 2.

Disclaimers:
- Your victories only count within the stage/round you played in and do not carry over into another one. Example: If you enter the Grand Prix on the final day of Stage 1 but didn't complete your matches, any victories will only be counted for that day. Stage 2 is a new day, and your victory count will be reset.
- Unclaimed rewards will be sent to your crate after the tournament. If you do not see your rewards, try returning to the title screen and checking your crate again.
- You cannot complete the "Played Take Two in Arena" mission in the Grand Prix.
